Partially Completed Eiffel Tower - 1888 The Eiffel Tower, the famous Parisian landmark, was fully completed by 1889--in time for that year's World's Fair and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. Here's what the tower looked like in 1888 when only the base of the tourist attraction had been completed. (The completed tower stands 324 meters in height--the equivalent of an 81-story skyscraper.)

Gerald Ford WIN Buttons In 1974 after becoming president Gerald Ford's WIN buttons--Whip Inflation Now is considered one of the biggest government public relations flops. The button appealed to the Republican Ford because it put the emphasis on fighting inflation through voluntary citizen action rather than a big government bureaucracy of price controls.

Frasier - Diane Writes a Play From a 1996 episode of Frasier: Diane Chambers returns! The show's plot has Diane--who heartlessly jilted Frasier in their previous sitcom (Cheers)--travelling to Seattle to stage a play that she wrote. Diane invites Frasier to a dress rehearsal...and he sees some very familiar characters onstage. His reactions and tirade are priceless.

(Conan has said in several interviews that this is his favorite 'remote' comedy bit.)

Troubled Life of James Stacy Actor James Stacy first gained fame as Fred, a peripheral college-age character on The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, from 1958 through 1965. He became well known for the Bonanza-like western series Lancer, portraying hot-headed eldest son Johnny Lancer from 1968 to 1970. Stacy was involved in a major motorcycle mishap in November 1973. A drunk driver named Carter Gordon rammed his car into Stacy's motorbike on a Los Angeles road, killing Stacy's passenger (actress/girlfriend Claire Cox) and seriously injuring the actor. Stacy lost his left arm and leg. Stacy's ex-wife (Connie Stevens) organized a lavish benefit to help offset his medical and rehabilitation costs. Frank Sinatra and Barbra Streisand both performed at the function which raised $118,000. Stacy later won a seven-figure judgment against the Chopping Block Bar, a Beverly Hills tavern that had served the drunk driver. For a while Stacy returned to acting in roles specially designed to showcase his disability, such as playing a double-amputee Vietnam War veteran in the made-for-TV movie Just a Little Inconvenience. He also appeared on Highway to Heaven. However, Stacy became a pariah in 1995 when he pleaded no contest to molesting an 11-year-old neighbor girl in California. He fled to Hawaii to avoid sentencing and unsuccessfully tried to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff. Stacy likely would have been given no jail time for his crime based on his disability, but his post-arrest behavior and reports of him stalking two other young girls eventually got him a six-year prison sentence. Stacy died suddenly in 2016 in his doctor's office from anaphylactic shock after he had a severely adverse reaction to an injection of antibiotics. Stacy was 79 years old.

Forgotten Show : Run Joe Run The reference book Total Television describes Run, Joe Run as a cross between Lassie and The Fugitive--which is quite accurate. The premise of this NBC kids' show (which ran on Saturday mornings from 1974 to 1976) was that an army German Shepherd named Joe is wrongly accused of attacking his trainer in the K-9 Unit, Sgt. William Corey. Joe flees but is relentlessly pursued by reward-seeking folks who want him to face retribution for the crime he did not commit! While on the lam, Joe would help people in distress. It was one of a scant few live-action Saturday morning shows. During the first season, Arch Whiting played Sgt. Corey who also pursued Joe--to tell him he'd been exonerated. In the second season, the show's focus shifted. A new character was added: a young biker named Josh McCoy (played by Chad States) who became Joe's do-gooding ally. Here are the opening and closing montages from the first season.
